Founded in 1949, Rodic’s Diner is revered by the University of the Philippines’ students for its exceptionally tasty version of Tapsilog. Fine-tuned over generations, the recipe is well known for its signature flaky tapa that resembles the texture of corned beef, giving off a blend of sweet and salty flavors you can enjoy at any time of the day.
The first meal I ever had in UP was in Rodic's. I think I was less than 10 years old. It's an institution in the university, known for its tapa (which many say isn't actually beef...). I only ever get tapa so I can't speak for the other dishes; but come on, why would you go to Rodic's and not get the tapa?!
House of Lechon is one of the places known for having the best-tasting lechon in Cebu. The restaurant is famous for mixing an elegant dining experience with the most delicious and satisfying meal anybody (Filipinos or foreigners) could ask for. The interior is classy without losing that touch of native Filipino.
